Thursday 24th & Friday 25th of May

Our annual conference #COMIT2018 was held at the Hallam Conference Centre in London. As usual we had a wide range of speakers from all walks within the construction and technology sectors. Our intention was to create an event that was both relevant and instructive but also enjoyable and even inspirational.

There was plenty of opportunity for networking and we held a soirée immediately after the conference on the 24th with free food and drinks for delegates. This year's event was FREE to attend due to support from an anonymous benefactor.


A big thank you to our sponsors, presenters and to everyone who attended our conference. We had over a hundred people attend on both days and the feedback we have had from delegates has been excellent. Photographs and presentations will be available here soon!
